So where's the snow?

Muddling through life from Austria to Wales; God, life and a small black dog

Angel’s wings



We discovered this church on a recent trip to Styria, in St Ruprecht, just down the road from us. Rennovated in the 1990s, what caught my interest was the brightness, with contrast of the white paint and with the gold, blue and pink.


Compared to the older duller buildings, this just lifted the spirits. Then I was caught with the Angel’s wings, usually they are depicted as white or diaphanous, but these were besides gold, pink and blue, a favourite colour combination of mine.

I could spend a whole long service just looking at these guys, praising God, marveling, and maybe asking myself, why do Angels need nipples?

  1. It brings to mind the whole big debate over whether Adam and Eve had belly buttons. The picture of the angel is really beautiful.
